's 8.2 then, i think it's a big problem for obama. >> ohio. the ever important state. there is an ad that says that obama's chrysler deal undermines u.s. workers. gm's ceo came out and said that the latest romney ad is politics at its worst this, is going to play out before voters in ohio. your thoughts on this? >> i was in ohio yesterday. ways in hamilton county, cincinnati then over in lebanon, and then, over in delaware county. goit a good taste of southwestern ohio. last time, obama carried ohio. it is rob portman's base. they're very, very proud of them. republicans told me they believe they're going to carry hamilton county maybe by 23,000 votes. that would be a swing of 50,000 votes by itself that would guarantee carrying ohio. people in lebanon and warren county very republican. tremendously enthusiastic. they're going to vote bigger than they voted last time for mccain. in delaware county it was a very rural area we were in. i couldn't find any obama voters. obama is going to be competitive. he's going to have cleveland and areas around dayton. i think ohio probably going to
in florida, with senator marco rubio, paul ryan's bus tour is crisscrossing ohio. president obama visits new hampshire this afternoon. and vice president biden will attend a rally in lynchburg, virginia. let's get right to it. nbc's mike viqueira is joining us from the white house. good saturday morning to you. >> hi, alex. >> first before we get to this president's trip north. is tropical storm sandy affecting any of the white house plans? >> it certainly is. you've heard this phrase, we're familiar with it, an abundance of caution. that's what you're seeing from some of the campaigns today. vice president biden was set to appear in virginia beach right along the coastline with his wife dr. jill biden and son beau biden. that event has been canceled. meanwhile michelle obama, the first lady, was due in new hampshire on tuesday. out of again abundance of caution they have canceled, postponed that event. mitt romney was due in virginia beach where joe biden was supposed to be today. they postponed that event. they've altered their schedules. they're going to be appearing elsewhere. you mentio
possible, but again, the key for president obama is going to be ohio. you have florida and virginia to romney. he's at 248, obama 243. colorado leaning toward romney. now give obama new hampshire where he is favored, wisconsin where he is favored. give him iowa, just 263. then we are looking on election night to that all-important state of ohio, obama at 281. if you gave that to romney, look at that, 275-263. that's why it is so key. what is the one state that could keep us up at night? let's look out west. we've been giving it to mitt romney colorado. watch what happens if we give romney florida, virginia, ohio. he's at 266. president obama, what does he need? new hampshire, wisconsin, iowa, all places he's favored and look at the one place that's keeping us up at night, western state, mountain time zone, late closing time, 266, 263, nine electoral votes there could swing it one way or the other. let's look at one last scenario where we could have ourselves a tie. president obama out west is favored in nevada. let's say we give it to mitt romney. it's only a three-point lead in our
a dead even race in ohio. five points for obama. when they last tested here a number of weeks ago. shows momentum on romney side. the question is does he have momentum to push him perhaps 270. >> bret: quick answer of impact of the storm, hurricane sandy and what it means for the race? >> could it mean -- i think it's freezing the race. it's hard for either romney or obama to break through with new, with some new initiative while everybody is focused on sandy. i don't think it affects the turnout. >> bret: karl? >> it could effect turn-out. people affected by this; particularly, people unable to cope with it might be less likely to turn out. let's see when the storm hits. when it passes. if people can put themselves back together. the other thing is it will push the campaigning further west. we will see more appearances in iowa, colorado, nevada, wisconsin, western ohio than we would have seen otherwise in fewer appearances and florida. fewer appearances in places like virginia and pennsylvania. eastern ohio. >> bret: last thing, quickly. we had an ipad app that people can put in their m

, 137-39. this continues throughout the states. you see ohio, florida, colorado. obama's lead is massive. obama built the largest grassroots organization that politics saw in '08 and after he won he continued to build it. this can make a difference of two points and in a close race like this it can make all the difference in '08. it gave obama some already. that's not the situation in this case. people that have been to the ground offices say the obama offices are all about obamament the romney offices are rnc offices and not always all about romney. that leads a conservative like joe scarborough to worry about what's happening that the obama offices are building this unparalleled turnout machine and the great irony that scarborough writes for the romney camp is their candidate drirch by data and numbers his entire life is relying on the most unpredi unpredictable force of all, human emotion, to pull him over the top. i don't understand why romney and the gop have allowed this to happen? >> if it were just about having offices, obama would be in a clear lead in states like florida he's n
. >> i can tell you, we pulled ohio last week. and i looked at the two polls that had obama plus 4. i don't think obama plus four is the right number in ohio and here is why. >> bill: what was your number by the way? >> we had it tied. 47, 47. suffolk listed all the candidates on the ballots. a couple of things of on those polls that i noticed. number one cuyahoga county was weighted at 13%. the truth about cuyahoga county from 2004 to 2008 the total votes cast in ohio went up 100,000 if you add up all the candidates but in cuyahoga county, between 2004 and 2008 which was a big year for barack obama, cuyahoga county casted less ballots in the election in 2008 than 2004. the relative strength of cuyahoga has dropped to 11% north 13%. >> bill: that's very favorable to barack obama. that's the cleveland area. so, if they are weighting that in a heavy way. >> at 13% instead of 11%. >> bill: it's reality that the vote is dropping there. it's going to be better for romney. >> true. >> bill: do you trust rasmussen, larry? you are pretty outspoken about these polls. remember, scott was on it the
wall. >> he needs to win iowa, wisconsin and ohio. the obama campaign said they're ahead in iowa right now, this could make some difference in the end and it reinforces the argument that romney is making. he's best positioned to make the bipartisan compromises. >> george stephanopoulos, thank you. george stephanopoulos has a huge show this morning, his guests include stephanie cutter from the obama campaign and the former house speaker newt gingrich. >>> other top stories. >> there's other news. >>> good morning, everyone. another potential attack on a u.s. embassy may have be thwarted. 11 people have been arrested on atta attacks, including the american embassy in jakarta. >>> new details on the tragic story of the new york city nanny who allegedly killed two young children, family and friends of that nanny that she had been unraveling in recent months. ortega is still in the hospital with self-inflicted knife wounds >>> the young man known as the victim number one in the jerry sandusky sexual abuse scandal is speaking out on bullying. he was trying to help to put an end to bullying a
, columbus, ohio, we saw primarily obama ads on tv all the time. here in cincinnati it is the reverse. it is mostly romney ads. the tv ads that they run are taken from the debates, either debate number one or debate number three to make his final argument here, closing argument in ohio. as ohio goes so goes the nation. you will hear that time and again. it is a dead-heat as we stand here today in this critical swing state. both sides claim they have the edge. who's right? larry sabato is here with that important answer coming up next in ohio, martha. martha: interesting stuff. thank you so much, bill. and back here, hurricane sandy's wrath extending 800 miles along the east coast. the worst may be far from over, is far from over no doubt. we're live with the very latest on the storm's path after this. tlement or annuity over 10 or even 20 years? call imperial structured settlements. the experts at imperial can convert your long-term payout into a lump sum of cash today. a cup of johan is a 600 horsepower sports coupe that likes to hug curves. ♪ your curves. smooth, rich, never bitte

, in ohio it has remained a pretty strong edge for president obama. his advisers told politico yesterday double-digit edge in ohio and some other battle ground states. so they feel good about those numbers. they're emphasizing how many more field offices they have out in ohio, mitt romney using that as an argument to say they're really target particular precincts. they can be on the ground in particular neighborhoods. both getting out their voters, voters who have voted in the past, attracting new voters, and hopefully for them whipping some of those undecided voters, there aren't that many out there left but there are a few. >> ladies, thank you both for weighing in. susan i'm glad we got your ear back in. we needed that. thank you both. >>> so rid el me. this what do richard nixon, bill clinton and ronald reagan all have in common with a state that's up for grabs this election? the answer in just a few minutes. more dishwasher brands in north america recommend cascade. at legalzoom, we've created a better place to turn for your legal matters. maybe you want to incorporate a business yo
industry in particular. obviously president obama signed that auto bailout package. a lot of folks in ohio and some surrounding states are very appreciative of that. they believe they still have a job today because of that bailout. governor romney, on the other hand, was in favor of a managed bankruptcy for g.m. and chrysler. and so he's got to somehow get voters to look past that, that he would be a supportive president of union workers in this state. as you mentioned, governor romney is down in florida today. we are expected after this bus tour to head down there as well. but right now the polls are looking in the president's favor. the latest cnn poll has the president up 50-46. there's still some work to be done here but we can tell you that the folks who are showing up for these republican events are very energized, they are very enthused about their ticket. and now as a matter of seeing, alex, who's got the better ground game. democrats or republicans. we'll know in ten days. >> we will certainly indeed. thank you so much ron mott. safe travels on the bus tour. >>> next up we turn to

with sandy. mitt romney cancelled all of his sunday campaign stops in virginia. he's going to ohio instead. president obama hasn't scratched any events yet, but air force one is changing its flight schedule, and vice president biden cancelled a sunday stop in virginia beach. >>> still ahead tonight, a silent salute for a police officer killed in prince georges county. >>> plus, we're continuing to update sandy. >> reporter: as the threat of sandy becomes more real for residents in rehoboth beach, citizens prepare for the worst. i'm erikaerica gonzalez, more c up. >>> search nbc washington weather in itunes or the android market. anncr: seven-hundred-thousand jobs. that's what the plan george allen supports... would cost our economy. newspapers called it "economically destructive." like allen's votes to give tax breaks to companies... that ship jobs overseas, his economic plan would... help big corporations, devastating the middle class. allen even voted against tax breaks for small businesses. virginia can't afford to go back to george allen. the democratic senatorial campaign committee...
than the president and much of that money is being spent in ohio. both romney and president obama are hitting the buckeye state hard. >> i've got a plan that will actually create jobs, a plan that will actually create middle class security. >> this ohio rally the last stop on a 48 hour battleground blitz. a new fox news poll of the swing state of virginia shows the obama/biden team down two points. the democratic ticket won virginia in 2008, the first democratic ticket to do so since 1964. there he is, mark plotkin with us again tonight. the president behind a couple points in virginia. what do you make of that? >> well, virginia is basically a republican state and they've had a good series of victories. governor bob mcdonnell won in 2009. they won the lieutenant governorship, the attorney generalship, became even in the state and have overriding majorities in the statehouse and if is basically a republican state and the -- it is basically a republican state and the president is counting on the changing demographics in virginia and as you said, it was 40 years before they actually
in the battlegrounds and that effectively the race is frozen. now governor romney was out in ohio today, campaigning, making some arguments about the auto bailout which has been an issue that's helped president obama in the state of ohio. but the problem for mitt romney and anyone else participating in the campaign right now is all the coverage is drowning out anything that politicians say. we are locked in a very tight race. we had two new polls out this morning, tracking polls. one, the washington post/abc news poll showed mitt romney 49%-brah 49%-barack obama 48%. another poll shows pro seciselye opposite. obama 48%. but they're the same poll. with a margin of error, we have essentially a tie race but the obama team believes that their advantage is in the battleground states like iowa, states like nevada, states like ohio that mitt romney needs and we'll see whether they are right. but as of now, it appears unlikely that things are going to move very much over the next couple of days because romney's canceled campaign events tomorrow, so has the president. >> when we talk about the sort of being
for the candidates to get their messages out. also, obama has the lead in virginia, 4-point lead. he's ahead in ohio. and to the extent that this -- the weather conditions in those states take the attention away from the election tmay freeze things in place. i think obama is going to win both virginia and ohio, i think it will be very, very close. i think this election's going to go doub to the wire. i suspect you will see both candidates as they readjust their schedule because of the weather, trying to pick the state where is they can have an impact. colorado is clearly in play. visix grandchildren in colrady on, i spend a lot of time out there. it's a classic swing state. i have a feeling, as the weather's bad on the east coast, you will see candidates in that part of the country. it is interesting, the implications of something like this. this is totally unexpected. but it's going to go right down to the wire. >> eric: you mentioned the storm, you mentioned the swing states. you have a bunch in the path of hurricane sandy. florida, ohio, new hampshire, virginia, north carolina, nevada and wiscons
of people being targeted by both campaigns in ohio, undecided women. the latest fox poll in ohio shows obama holds a significant lead but the romney campaign believes it is gaining ground. mike tobin in columbus with more. >> a solid majority of the coveted undecided vote in ohio is women. no voter is microtargetted more aggressively. >> our voice matters and we do count as women and our opinion and our role is held high. >> i have seen a lot that has to do with abortion. a lot that seem to it deal with equal pay and that really speaks out to me. >> which do you believe. >> obama supporters hit hard on the concept that a romney win would threaten healthcare and remove women's choices. >> overturn roe v. wade. planned parenthood. we will get hid of that. >> and linked mitt romney to the controversial statements about rape and abortion made by todd akin and richard murdoch. >> that it is something that god intended to happen. >> because they are provocative and extreme they are getting attention of the women voters. >> conservatives operating with the strategy that women voters care about the
hurts a candidate. he is going to ohio. so is president obama. in terms of the eastern coast, north carolina really is going to go romney. i don't think it will be affected but the only real state is virginia. that one will be affected by the lack of presidential visits during this three-day or four- day period. >> with both candidates having to throw out the fourth quarter game book and faulkous the storm, such a tight race, can they afford to do that? >> they have to make adaptations. the president will try to look presidential, act presidential, show that he cares. the romney campaign has said they will send their volunteers out to help with relief efforts. they've suspended fundraising e- mails so everybody wants to get in the spirit of helping every american during this mini crisis. >> you hate to politicize something like this but does any candidate have the up are hand in this type after situation? >> i really don't think so. the only thing i read that kind of means something, if this had been closer to election day, al gore supposedly would have won florida if the weather wa
. president obama also cancelling plans to visit ohio and is instead focusing on the storm. he says he's working with the governors and the states at risk the greatest risk of hurricane sandy. he is vowing to eliminate red tape for assistance there. >> my message to the governors as well as the mayors is anything they need we will be there. we are going to cut through red tape. they a we are not going to bog down with a lot of rules. >> the president will hold a rally in orlando before heading back to the white house. mitt romney's campaign has stopped sending fundraising e-mails in several states in sandy's path including new jersey, north carolina virginia, washington, d.c. a whole lot of areas affected by this storm. romney is urging supporters to keep millions at risk in their prayers. >> i know right now some people are nervous about a storm about to hit the coast. our thoughts and prayers are with the people who find themselves in harm's way. >>> the romney campaign will use the campaign to help with relief efforts across the east coast and collect supplies to the storm victims
of break away for president obama tonight is a lead of four in ohio. you can't go to the bank with a leader for. that is one of the bitterly is that we have. otherwise one or two points in virginia. gerri: let me give you a couple of points here. ohio, romney has in its 50-48. florida, romney 50, obama 49. north carolina -- neck and neck. so ultimately it seems to me this bill could go either way. and we will be watching. with this vote, decided on the basis of a single news story? could it be something that breaks over the weekend? something that carries the momentum? >> anything that moves a couple of hundred or a couple of thousand votes in any one of these battle ground states can determine the election. absolutely. my fear, and this is not as a pollster, but an american is that instead of one court case that we had in florida in 2000, we can have multiple court cases. this is just so close. gerri: i hope that is not the case. we have to go. thank you for being with us. we'll be right back. >> thank you. [ male announcer ] at scottrade, you won't just find us online, you'll also find us
obama up in ohio still. >> yeah, i think obama does have a slight lead in ohio. >> even though the cincinnati inquirer poll just had it tied. >> i understand that. >> it's not rasmussen. which polls do we believe now? >> i understand that. do you want me to -- should we keep going on this or shy deal with andrew's question about the ground game? >> no, we better talk sandy i think. >> okay. sandy effect on the vote is entirely speculative. there are a lot of people yakking about it, but mostly making stuff up. i'll go to a couple things. first of all, obama is believed to have a somewhat more extensive ground game, he has more people on the ground. so in theory, he has more to disrupt. the president's schedule has him doing more events that will have to be canceled than romney. on the other hand, because romney is down a field goal and needs something to happen, the idea that sandy could flereeze things in place for a few days is not necessarily good for him because he had momentum after the first debate. the momentum seems to have died out. it's left him in a very competitive
, the gallup poll 41 and all for romney, and nobody trusts president obama on the economy. >> ohio and-- >> and investors don't trust him, because-- investors don't trust him he's already told businesses the tax rates are going to go up, especially on small businesses and secondly, obamacare, the single largest mandated labor cost hike in american history is about to clobber. >> unemployment is the best in years and-- >> the unemployment is the best it's been in years. >> down to 7.8%. >> that doesn't mean more people are working. >> and the numbers have shown the economy is getting better. >> the american people are more than the people you live with and hang out in your house. 7.8% is not real when it's 14.7%. and americans are working two and three jobs. americans are still looking for some kind of recovery and they're not with barack obama to get that recovery. >> the jobs that barack obama put forward and the republicans want to get him out of office. if the republicans sit down with the president in a bipartisan way and work on a jobs bill. >> federal government spending does not
the election l sas well, which is j eight days away. president obama has cancelled campaign events in virginia and ohio to monitor the storm here from washington. he has also cancelled an appearance tomorrow here in colorado. mitt romney scrapped plans to spend yesterday in virginia. instead, he joined running mate paul ryan in ohio. the republican presidential nominee campaigning again today in ohio. he'll stop in iowa and wisconsin after that. the storm has also put early voting in maryland on hold. those hoping to cast their ballots before next week's election will have to wait at least a day as governor o'malley cancelled all early voting. early voting started on saturday. a lot of people lined up to get it done before the storm. voting was supposed to end on thursday, but it may be extended. complete coverage of hurricane sandy on our website, nbcwashington. nbcwashington.com. while you are online, you can sign up with breaking news and weather alerts. >>> new this morning, a woman faces charges accused of falsely reporting her car was stolen with her three young children inside, triggeri
a rally for president obama in youngstown, ohio. of course, the president will not be there. he is in washington. joe biden will be there. live coverage starting at 3:30 p.m. eastern. the president's statement expected at 12:45 eastern. right now, a discussion on the cost of campaign 2012 from this morning's washington journal. that is the last comprehensive report we would get from the campaign, party committees, other groups. when they spend money, especially these outside organizations, they have to report every 24 hours but they have spent. the big picture is pretty well defined. host: the romney and obama campaigns are expected to raise $1 billion each. what does this say about the election? guest: is very hours but they have competitive and close. people are engaged and interested. the president's campaign in 2008 also got to about $1 billion, but altogether with the parties donations. for both of them to be there is extraordinary. host: walk us through what you're looking at in terms of money raised. there are other groups attracting wealthy. >> the campaigns are fairly d
that president obama has in ohio and to a certain degree when it comes to the storm, so there are political ramifications clearly, but also some practical ramifications as well, and as ana marie said a few moments ago, chaos looms, unfortunately. >> anne, in terms of the presidential prospective, president obama just finished talking with craig fugate and the director of fema, and we're waiting for the tape to turn around. we'll get comments in a moment. how much does this help him potentially? this platform for which he is the president of the united states during a really terrible time for about a sixth of the country? >> i think robert is right. he does have a chance to look presidential, although being the president, he gets to look presidential whenever he wants. he has to pay extra mind to the storm and be seen as actually presiding over it, doing his best to make sure he's on top of it. that's a lot to ask somebody a week and a couple of days just before the election. i think that probably the bigger danger, in addition to the ones that the other two mentioned, people simply aren't g
. we need josh mandel in ohio. we need him now. you know, president obama -- over the last four years has made a lot of decisions. some of them, he siad would result in new jobs that haven't happened. he said he'd cut the deficit. it hasn't happened. we have someone who is running for president who knows how to bring back jobs. he has the experience. he has the experience and the record nd he knows how to work with democrats and repubicansbls and that's why we need mitt romney to fix what's broken and bring back the american dream. i see a uaw member here in front of me. i will talk autos in a way that is straight talk. obama said a few things that, as he said, were "whoppers." he said, you wanted to take those companies through ban kruptcy. it was obama who took gm and chrysler through bankruptcy. it was mitt romney who did provide for loan guarantees. every fact-checker who looked has said that barack obama was wrong and was not telling the truth. this is what is most important, with the communities depending on autos. the policies that will be good for the auto industry, for the st
